Conferences & Workshops

Conferences and Workshops | The exchange of scientific knowledge between Latin American and internationally recognized scientists in species conservation is a top priority at YAQU PACHA.

So far, five workshops and two conferences have been financially supported by YAQU PACHA:

Furthermore, YAQU PACHA supports scientists from South America and Latin America to participate in international species conservation conferences and workshops. The exchange of scientific findings has the highest priority in species conservation. All projects of YAQU PACHA are accompanied by our Scientific Advisory Board .

In 2022, the YAQU PACHA Germany team was able to successfully organize and conduct our important workshop Human Dimension in small Cetacean Conservation with the support of our partners.

For five days, more than 30 experts from 15 countries discussed how the human dimension can be applied to the conservation of small cetaceans and dolphins. Our main goal was to expand the concept of integrated species conservation by involving people, especially those who share their environment with endangered species. To achieve this goal, we invited field biologists as well as experts such as psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, tourism experts as well as business and communication experts. Together we exchanged our experiences in species conservation, had lively discussions and developed ideas for the future.

The next step is to produce a report that can serve decision-makers in situations where the coexistence of animals and humans could be endangered, especially by human activities.
